Weekly Religious Education for All Ages

RE Connections for the week of May 16

This Sunday, May 22nd, is an intergenerational service, where everyone will be together in the sanctuary. There are no regular classes. Childcare will be available in the preschool room, and for any preschoolers who are participating in the child dedication, after the ceremony.

Don’t forget the RE family picnic after the service this Sunday, out on the playground. Please plan to bring a bag lunch and drinks for your family. We’ll provide some additional snacks and dessert (ice cream!).  

Sybil will be out of the office May 23 – 30th, so no Connections next week.

Sunday May 29th we begin our summer programs, with a single multi-age classroom for arts and crafts, stories, and playground time. We’ll resume regular classes after Labor Day.
